Overview

Guest speakers and field trips are an integral part of the course, which include visits to the counter-crime, counter terrorism and counter modern slavery organisations*. Previous students have been able to work on placements with the local police forces, as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and international organisations within Europe, including the antimafia organisation AddioPizzo in Sicily, Ethicando in Paris, the UN NGO Women’s Federation for World Peace in Geneva, the Institute of Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin, CISS (International Cooperation South-South) in Italy, and Chatham House in London.

Career prospects 

Employers are looking for individuals with the ability to work across different cultures, to manage teams and possess problem-solving and critical analysis skills.

The CMI accredited ‘Global Professional Development’ module can help to set you apart in a competitive job market (as further described in the Accreditation tab). You will gain practical leadership skills to critically evaluate and develop solutions for complex, inter-related, multi-faceted issues that you will experience in your future organisations.

We encourage you to gain first-hand experience through volunteering and placement opportunities. In the past, students have undertaken internships in counter terrorism with the West Midlands Police or antimafia and anti-trafficking grass-root project in Sicily, France and Greece and spent time conducting research in universities abroad, such as the Arab-American University in Jenin, or an antimafia research centre in Palermo.

The Terrorism, International Crime and Global Security course at Coventry University   can help you purse or advance a career in the armed forces, police force, international agencies such as the United Nations or the European Union or other international NGOs.
